It is impossible to get enough of these fall colors that currently grace Napa. I found a little area in Carneros that seemed a little unkempt and it was not clear to me whether these grapes were still waiting to be harvested or if they had simply been left behind! Whatever the case, I was grateful for their “plumminess” in the sun!
It is time to open a bottle of the bubbly! This imagine sold yesterday on a stock photography site with an enhanced license! The cat in me is so curious about the purpose – if anybody sees it in a book or magazine, please tell me!
Taken an early spring morning at a winery near the Silverado Trail a couple of years ago.
The beautiful red, orange and yellow leaves are on their last legs, but I did manage to enjoy them one last time last week! Here are some sunset photos from Screaming Eagle Winery on the Silverado Trail. If you look closely, you will see a tiny rainbow in one of the photos! There must have been humidity on top of the mountains.
The colors are not quite as spectacular as they will be in a couple of weeks, but a few little pockets around Oakville are showing colors ranging from vibrant green to stunning orange and red. Andretti Winery is one of the most photogenic wineries that I know of! It is located on Big Ranch Road which runs parallel to the Silverado Trail. It is open to the public and tastings are available. Grab your cameras and have fun!
Last weekend was the final opportunity to enjoy the beautiful lavender in Sonoma County before the harvest. We were told that this would take two weeks to complete! What a beautiful day to enjoy the perfume of the lavender and the sounds of happy honey bees.
I thank Gale Perry of Light Fantastic Photo Tours for organizing this delightful workshop!
